Greta Mason is an up and coming talented young event rider aiming to compete at the highest level and work towards representing her country on either an Australian or GB team. She is currently based in Kings Cliffe, Northamptonshire just outside Peterborough.
Greta was born in Australia and had her imagination first fired for equine adventure when she was four. This has no doubt paved the way for her appetite for fast cross-country riding as her hired mount aptly called Bullet ran off with her into the Tasmanian forest. Greta lived there for 8 years before moving to England. She got her first pony at the age of 8yrs and that fired her passion to make riding her career.
Over the past few years Greta has produced a number of horses, most notably Tinkers Pearl and Cooley for Sure who are now at CCI2* and competed this year at the Young Rider Championships at Houghton Hall in 2017. Both horses have gained valuable experience through the year.Alongside her more established horses Greta is currently is producing a number of other younger quality eventers from 4 year olds upwards which are for sale.
In addition, Greta has enjoyed considerable success with her involvement in the Pony Club. She been a key longstanding Burghley member being part of the winning Eventing Championship team in 2016. At this event Greta also won the individual Pony Club Championship Cross Country Bursary.
Following on from this in 2017 Greta gained her A test with Honours and has just been appointed as a Pony Club Ambassador.
Growing up surrounded by horses on her parents’ farm in the heart of Leicestershire, a career in horses was inevitable for Heidi. Her mum had her first pony lined up before she was even born and it wasn’t long before six-year old Heidi was a member of the Belvoir Pony Club and had her first tastes of success at local riding club shows. Heidi enjoyed a successful childhood competing in working hunter classes with her most impressive achievements including being crowned Champion at the Royal International Horse Show in 2012 and placing 2nd at HOYS in 2014. Heidi started eventing in the autumn of 2013 and won her first event, a BE80 at Frickley, on Riversdale Magic Heart.
2018 was a very exciting year for Heidi as she proved her consistency by achieving an astounding 36 top ten finishes out of 42 events, the highlight of which had to be winning team and individual silver at the Junior European Championships in Fontainebleu. This exceptional performance was made all the more special by Heidi having produced Royal Fury from the very beginning of his eventing career. This fantastic year was topped off by Heidi achieving promising results on two more self-produced youngsters as six-year old Halenza placed 9th in her first Intermediate while her exciting new 4 year-old, Jack Ass, finished 10th at the Osberton Young Horse Championships.
2019 got off to a flying start with Heidi landing an impressive 1-2 at Lincolnshire Intermediate Young Rider Trial. Her success continued with a great win at Belton Intermediate. Following this, Heidi was selected to represent Great Britain at the Young Rider European Championships in Maarsbergen in Holland on her own Royal Fury. Heidi managed to climb 20 places after the dressage to win an individual bronze medal. Heidi was also selected on two horses to compete at the world seven year old championships with her own, Halenza, and David Ottewells Russal Z, where they finished 10th and 15th. To finish off a fabulous season Heidi was the leading under 21 rider of the year and win the Goldmans league for the most BE points of the season and finished the season ranked 48th in the World.
